Prep: 20Cook: 40Total: 1 hour
Yield 1 loaf 1x



  • 2 cups gluten-free flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill GF all purpose baking)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 overripe large bananas, mashed (or 3 medium bananas)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs, room temperature


For the topping, mix half of above cinnamon sugar mixture with 1 cup finely chopped apples (I used one Gala + one Granny Smith).


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, add mashed bananas, honey, oil, and vanilla. Stir to combine.
  4. Whisk in two eggs.
  5. Fold dry ingredients into wet, stirring until completely combined.
  6. Pour half of batter into greased bread loaf pan.
  7. In a small bowl, mix coconut sugar, coconut oil, and cinnamon with a fork.
  8. Sprinkle half of cinnamon sugar mixture on first half batter.
  9. Pour remaining half of batter on top.
  10. Add apples to cinnamon sugar mixture and toss to coat.
  11. Sprinkle apple cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
  12. Bake in 350F oven for 40-44 minutes – using a toothpick to test. I took mine out at 40 minutes and it was done.
